MAYBELLINE Lash Sensational Mascara

Ladies, you got to try this mascara, I am really impressed with this one. It has mixed reviews but in my opinion, it’s a beautiful product. I find the formula dark, wet, rich and lovely. It definitely curls, defines and separate the lashes. A huge plus for me is that it doesn’t dry crunchy. It’s soft, but holds its shape. When I tried to remove it, I did notice it was tough to remove with makeup remover. After researching online found out that it comes out easily with oil based cleanser or any oil ( not sure.. haven’t tried it yet).

This mascara actually does what it advertises. The short bristles deposits most of the mascara at the base of the lashes and longer bristles fans out the lashes beautifully. The curved shape of the brush makes it easier to lift and curl the lashes. Overall a great mascara and a definite repurchase for me.

Have you tried this mascara? What are your thoughts?

Pantone Color of the year

Hello!! Ladies, 2015 is here, which means – new fashion trends, new makeup, innovation and lots of exciting stuff to look forward to. Recently, Pantone announced color of the year 2015: Marsala. I was intrigued so checked the nearby Sephora, and  ladies if you are a fan of copper brick tone, then you gonna love this color. It’s a earthy red caramel  tone and it resembles the Marsala wine. So to show you all I picked up Pantone color of the year multi finish eyeshadow palette. It has matte, shimmer, pearl and glitter finish eyeshadows and one can create endless combinations. It’s a very earthy tone palette with reds, browns, few greens, a silver and a blue shade. Overall good quality and most of them blends well except glittery ones, which can be slightly flakey.  I love caramel, copper, brick, burgundy and brown shades, so for me 2015 color trend is a winner. Here is to color of the year

KIKO MILANO makeup review

image

First time I heard of this brand was on Youtube and was curious to try. Recently, came across KIKO store and was blown away by how their products are laid out, each counter dedicated to different products like one counter for lipsticks, another one for eyeshadows and so on. The color range of KIKO MILANO products will blow you away. In my opinion, their products give the high street brands a run for their money. Here are few products I picked:

Long lasting stick 8 hour no transfer eyeshadow in #36 and #31- nice staying power and smooth application

Crystal sheer lipstick in #418 – it’s a light pink color and very moisturizing 

Double glam eyeliner in dark purple and cream shade – smudge free and easy to apply 

Nail lacquer in blue – last longer and opaque.

Pencil lip gloss – dark reddish tone with very fine glitter.

Nails Inc Varnishes Review

I own few of these Nail Inc shades, which at first didn’t came out as wow!! to me. I was pleasantly surprised when the color on the nails came out much nicer then it looked in the bottle. The formula is amazing with lovely lacquered sheen and the consistency of polish is opaque with self leveling effect so it gives the impression that I got my nails done at the salon. Here are few shades I own:
* Grosvenor Crescent
* Bruton Mews
* Alexa Cashmere
* Regents Park
